Recorded at Compass Point Bahamas, 2004. Released thru Bandcamp on 12 September 2019.
R.E.M. shared their previously unreleased song, 'Fascinating', to benefit global organization Mercy Corps’ Hurricane Dorian relief and recovery efforts in the Bahamas. Band members Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Michael Stipe recorded 'Fascinating' in 2004 at Nassau's Compass Point Studios.
The song first appeared on the original master of 2001's 'Reveal' album before being cut last minute, and, in fact, was singer Michael Stipe's favorite song from the sessions (according to guitarist Peter Buck's recollection, as chronicled in David Buckley's R.E.M. biography, Fiction). The song was produced by Pat McCarthy and engineered by Jamie Candiloro.
